Lamas in the principality of Liechtenstein
Over hill and dale with the lamas

Lamas Triesenberg

Together with his partner Anna-Lena Beck, Marc Schädler runs the llama and alpaca farm in Triesenberg.

Marc Schädler and Anna-Lena Beck with Karl

The story of the llama and alpaca farm started almost 12 years ago with three animals. Anna-Lena and Marc wanted a farm with animals - but no donkeys, horses, goats or cows. And so the first three llamas moved in. From 2010 on, they have expanded their offer around the South American cloven-hoofed animals more and more. About 200 trekking tours per year are carried out at the moment and the tipi on the llama farm is booked about 100 times per year.

The residents

A total of 24 fur friends live on the llama and alpaca farm at 880 meters above sea level. From their home they have a beautiful view over Liechtenstein and the Rhine Valley.

Karl, the favourite lama

"I like it here at Wangerberg, when I'm bored I always find a gap in the fence and explore a bit of Triesenberg. But my favorite time is still summer, when we can nibble on the fresh mountain grass in Malbun."

Lama or Alpaca?

Both lamas and alpacas are bilogically camels - but neither have humps.

 

Lama

  • descend from the guanacos
  • reaches a shoulder height of up to 120cm
  • looks a bit coarser than the alpaca
  • the lama ears have a slightly curved shape
  • shaggy and tangled

Alpaca

  • descend from the vicuñas
  • reaches a shoulder height of about 90cm
  • usually has a finer textured coat than the lamas, therefore are used more for wool production
  • the alpaca ears stand straight up
  • cute and clumsy

With such a beautiful view, the lamas and alpacas dwell in Liechtenstein. In the hot summer months you can often find them on their vacation meadow in Malbun, where it is a bit cooler.
